  1. 1. Kidney Hyaluronan Regulatory Aspects During Different States of Body Hydration, Nephrogenesis & Diabetes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Louise Rügheimer; Peter Hansell; Cecilia Johnsson; Örjan Källskog; Mats Rundgren; [2008]
    Keywords : Physiology; hyaluronan; kidney; dehydration; hydration; diabetes; nephrogenesis; renomedullary interstitial cells; CD44; hyaluronan synthase; hyaluronidase; vasopressin; nitric oxide; prostaglandins; glucocorticoids; angiotensin II; diuresis; lymph vessel; podoplanin; Fysiologi;

    Abstract : The kidney regulates the excretion of water and electrolytes, which maintains homeostasis and enables control of arterial blood pressure. Hyaluronan, a large negatively charged interstitial glucosaminoglycan, is heterogeneously distributed within the kidney, primarily found in the medulla. READ MORE

  2. 2. Role of tubular scattered cells of the kidney in disease and regeneration

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Krzysztof Krawczyk; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kidney Diseases; acute kidney disease; acute kidney injury; chronic kidney disease; SOX9; pIgR; Polymeric immunoglobulin receptor; Immune cells; papillary carcinoma; pRCC; Kidney cancer;

    Abstract : With well over 700 000 deaths every year worldwide, kidney disease constitutes an immense health problem for patients and society. The total global number of people with kidney disease regardless of severity amounts to a staggering 600 000 000. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Role of Kidney Oxygen Homeostasis for the Development of Kidney Disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Carla Carvalho; Fredrik Palm; Peter Hansell; Malou Friederich; Jenny Nyström; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oxygen; Kidney mitochondria; Hypoxia-inducible factors; Prolyl hydroxylase; von Hippel-Lindau; Diabetes; Aging; Kidney; Sodium; RAAS; Fysiologi; Physiology;

    Abstract : The relation between oxygen supply and demand determines tissue oxygen tension (PO2). When intrarenal tissue PO2 decreases, any compensatory increase in oxygen supply via increased renal blood flow is likely to increase glomerular filtration rate. READ MORE

  4. 4. The essence of living kidney donation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Annette Lennerling; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Living kidney donor; Kidney transplantation; Motives; Information; Decision-making; Glomerular filtration rate; Laparoscopic nephrectomy;

    Abstract : Aim Nephrectomy performed on healthy individuals for the purpose of transplantation is an exceptional activity. It confers great responsibilities to the medical staff involved. Potential donors must be carefully informed and assessed with respect to medical and psychosocial aspects. READ MORE

  5. 5. Macula Densa Derived Nitric Oxide and Kidney Function

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anna Ollerstam; Pontus Persson; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cell biology; Nitric oxide; rats; kidney; macula densa cells; tubuloglomerular feedback; renin; angiotensin II; blood pressure; hypertension; renal blood flow; neuronal nirtic oxide synthase; Cellbiologi; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi; Physiology; fysiologi;

    Abstract : The kidney is the major organ regulating the extracellular fluid volume and thereby the arterial blood pressure. The neuronal isoform of nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) in the kidney is predominantly located in the macula densa cells. READ MORE
